john paul began the morning in monterey county where he led a mass for tens of thousands of workers. >> reporter: thousands were given the day off. agustin romo and his family would be getting ready to pick strawberries were it not for the court. >> we have a great seat. >> you have the best seats in the house probably. >> i think so. >> reporter: this group is from the polish mission church in san jose. >> i'm catholic and he's the pope. and i came here to see him. it doesn't matter for me he's polish or a different nationality. for me it's the pope. >> reporter: not too far away we find maria cortinas not the best seat but good enough. >> are you cold maria? >> poquito. >> how do you like the view you have here? >> it's beautiful. she likes it. >> reporter: a few hours later, cortina's view no longer exists. heavy fog rolls in and while the papal preliminary continues the pope is heard but not seen. but many say the pope will be felt. the weather still caused enough concern to cancel the pope's helicopter ride into laguna seca. the pope's
tradition has two very capable applicants. the bad news is, they will need to work together. rand paul and marco rubio are often pitted against one another competes for influence and authority, at times they seem to encourage this and may, in fact, end up competing in 2016. but their differences now and until then should be exploited in productive ways for the party that addressed those two deficiencies. paul's ayn randian highly intellectualized conservatism is informed by libertarian and federalist principles, not a visceral populist impulse or evangelical one. >> it is wrote that there can be no liberty if you combine the executive and the legislative branches. likewise, there can be no justice if you combine the executive and the judicial branch. >> and rubio's conservatism is emotional. channeling reagan, the son of the cuban bartender, he speaks the language of hardworking middle class immigrant america. >> we don't need a new idea. there is an idea. the idea is called america. and it still works. >> the question isn't whose vision of the future should conservatives adopt, but ho
paul offers an immigration plan. >> there is no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we were not inclusive. >> the chairman of the republican committee. why did mitt romney lose in 2012? the republican national committee did some homework on the question. it was an autopsy that involves -- involved contacting more than 50,000 people. they did not need a study to tell them president obama owned the minority vote. charles, your reaction to the study? >> i would not have used the word "autopsy," as it applies to a corpse. we still have the gop, althought it is somewhat in a coma, but it will recover after eight years of liberalism. the one thing the rnc had to look at is what it did wrong. it should not be leading the party about ideas or ideology. that is the job of the leaders in the party and the candidates, but it should have done the nuts and bolts -- the outreach, the social media, the kind of ground game that obama had and republicans did not. it was lacking, and that is where it needs to recover, otherwise the game will be uneven from here
in washington kentucky senator rand paul has spent 2013 raising his national profile. first it was the 13-hour filibuster. then a big cpac speech that helped deliver a straw poll victory. and today senator paul is wading into the immigration debate in a big way. putting his support behind a path to legal status for millions of illegal immigrants. joining me now for the daily fix, chris cillizza, msnbc contributor. and managing editor of postpolitics.com and charlie cook, msnbc political analyst and founder of the cook political report. and charlie, i'll go to you first, we'll get chris to chime in on this. i was taken aback that rand paul went out on this limb to a degree, because he was really setting himself up as the right-wing presidential candidate. this separate 0ing up a flag on the immigration front. that someone like a tom tancredo did in 2008, could exploit rand paul if they wanted to. >> it could, but i'm looking at it on the first level, is that this is a remarkable speech. here we have the person who has become pretty much the most important tea party figure in the entire country.
in washington, the latest skirmish in the republican civil war was fought by rand paul against rand paul. >> the republicans are just totally bam booze he willed now. >> the gop ordered an autopsy. >> 98 page autopsy. >> of its performance in the last election. >> they don't understand they're being suckered. >> it is all about outreach, not policy. >> to be clear, our principles are sound. >> outside of pushing for comprehensive immigration reform. >> if you wish to live and work in america. >> kentucky senator rand paul. >> we will find a place for you. >> raising his national profile. endorsed a path to citizenship. >> we will find a place for you. >> i am now a single issue voter against amnesty. >> it is all completely incoherent. >> we know we have problems and we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. >> the opposition to the iraq war led to a crushing defeat for republicans. >> ten years to the day aftershock and awe. >> does political fallout remain? >> support for the war seems to fall down party lines. >> it is a tough issue for the gop. >> more than 32,000 woun
trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effect. they try to oversimplify everything in this, but is there some break through in this point of republicans saying you know what, the debt isn't such a serious problem? >> there's no break through. i think it is a big deal that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is always the thing, with this spring of deficit hawk, there's always in some future the gre

republicans also voted today again for the paul ryan budget. democrats are very excited about that because they plan to use that vote against republicans in campaign ads for the next election. we have the one and only ezra klein here momentarily to sort out what's important about what they just voted on in congress and whether we just avoided one of the cliff slash ceilings clash crisis congress now schedules for us every few weeks and whether the way they avoided this next one is itself important. there's a lot going on in the news. we have a lot ahead. we begin tonight with late breaking and rather surprising news from the democratic leader in the senate, senator harry reid. following two days of angry response from california senator dianne feinstein, she had been very publicly disappointed and angry harry reid was not going move her assault weapons ban to the senate floor as part of the democrats gun reform package. after two days of defiant reaction from senator dianne feinstein and supporters of gun reform and vice president biden made an appearance with mayor michael bloomberg deman
in the same tonal scale. if you look at cpac, i want to talk about the straw poll a little bit. rand paul won with 25% of the vote. marco rubio, at 23. rick santorum at 8 and chris christie at 7. i've maintained, and you're a national political reporter. the enthusiasm in and around rand paul is a coalition that is more dynamic than almost anything else the gop has. what are the implications of that in the next couple of years? especially as you have folks like jeb bush and chris christie. trying to move the country to more moderate and progressive in the lower-case "p" sense of the word. >> in covering ron paul, who of course rand paul is going to inherit the energy and enthusiasm from ron paul, you saw the biggest crowds, the most diverse crowds and the youngest crowds. that's what rand paul is going to capitalize on. should he run and it looks like he will run. i think over the last months and weeks you've seen obviously a split between the establishment and the tea party folks. rubio can't decide which one he is. rand paul, however, is very, i think solid and comfortable with his brand an

is as much a priority as actual legislation. in these days no one is playing the game better than rand paul whose top priority seems to be positioning himself for 2016. in a speech in the hispanic chamber of commerce paul put him squarely in the middle of the debate. >> immigration will not occur until conservative republicans like myself become part of the solution. that's why i'm here today to begin that conversation and to be part of the solution. i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >> michael: okay, sounds like he wants to find a way for undocumented immigrants to become citizens, well, not so fast. afterwards paul backpedaled saying while he wants to allow undocumented immigrants to stay he didn't want to pass citizenship. he said candidate we just have reform and then refer to it? wow, great way to say. representative yarmoth. what is happening with your fellow kentuckian rand paul, is this coming down to a path to citizenship?
evacuated just as a precaution. >>> in an exclusive interview on fox news sunday, kentucky senator rand paul is weighing in on the defense of marriage act. senator paul saying the issue of same-sex marriage should be decided by the states. the federal government, he says, could avoid it all together. listen. >> i don't want the government promoting something i don't believe in but i also don't mind if the government tries to be neutral on the issue. the tax code, i'm for a flat income tax and we wouldn't have marriage as part of the tax code. health insurance. i think there is a way to write it where it would be neutral and you wouldn't bring marriage into the whole idea of health insurance. >> will any of that happen. ? joining me, the anchor of "fox news sunday," chris wallace. good to see you. senator paul has taken this spogs. does very the support behind him? >> well, it's going to be interesting because this is directly involves the case on the defense of marriage october that the supreme court is going to hear this week. that case involves a gay couple, same-sex couple, one of the two
spur to know us on -- one spur focusing on winning back minority voters. today, rand paul jumped on board. the winner of the cpac straw poll addressing the chamber of commerce in washington had to say. >> republicans need to become parents of a new future with latino voters or we'll need to resign ourselves to being a permanent minority status. republicans pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration. the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. my hope is today we begin a dialogue between g.o.p. and latinos. dialogue that shows the g.o.p. sees all immigrants as assets and that latinos can see the g.o.p. as party of opportunity. >> andrea: well, he is one of many who have turned their position toward a more forward-looking position on immigration reform. dana, this would be almost unthinkable. i think years ago your former boss came out and talked about immigration reform. a lot of folks on the right stayed away from it. they're all moving in that direction. politics or the right thing to do or both. >> da
, cammeron has been looking at marco rubio and rand paul. and you consider these two guys rivals for the republican nomination in 2016. now they have staked out different territory on immigration. tell me where each guy stands on the proposed new immigration bill. it's been amazing to watch them both dance through immigration reform. the cpac conference that happened this last weekend. positioning for 2012 they are both acknowledge they are looking at it it rand paul. >> bill: 2016 you mean. >> sure. both tea party conservatives that's significant too. both of them are leading the charge on immigration reform. yesterday rand paul put out his plan there are differences. they both call them comprehensive immigration reform plans. they both would not right 11 to 12 illegal immigrants here to go back to mexico or pay a fine or things like that. they would have a path to some sort of status other than illegal which a lot of critics say is amnesty. and on and on they go. so it's pretty interesting because both of them as these tea party conservatives, young republicans in the senate, t

lee. senator rand paul making some headlines today, now supporting a pathway to citizenship for the nation's estimated 31 million illegals -- 11 million illegals. it's a significant policy move, but the possible 2016 white house candidate also makes it clear that his plan does come with conditions. >> if you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. in order to bring conservatives to this cause, however, those who work for reform must understand that a real solution must insure that our borders are secure. we must also treat those who are here already with understanding and compassion without also unduly rewarding them for coming illegally. jenna: carl cameron is live in washington with more. so, carl, a lot of different plans floating around out there. i'm sure viewers have heard quite a few of them. how is this different from the other plans on the hill? >> reporter: in a couple of ways, and you were sort of talking about rand paul, a tea party favorite, a conservative kentucky senator, and it's also worth noting that there's
, paul callan, cnn legal analyst. you're familiar with the steubenville rape attorney. does that mean charges for more people? >> it definitely could mean more charges for other people. there could be other students, other juveniles involved, and also the possibility the parents of the defendants engaged in some kind of cover-up or friends engaged in a cover-up. we don't know whether those specific accusations would be made but those could be the kind of things a grand jury would be investigating. so, there could be additional charges coming down the road if the evidence is there. >> paul, what would a grand jury do a solo jury couldn't do? >> they would compel subpoenas, individuals to testify. a judge can only hear the case in front of him. a grand jury has far-reaching power. >> is this process over for these boys? can they appeal the verdict? >> yeah, they can appeal the verdict. what you have to say, that courtroom scene today was -- it was a highly emotional scene. a lot of tears by the defendants and, of course, the victim who issued a statement saying tears were shed by the vi
but we don't talk about it because cbo didn't mention it in the score. that's the great trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effect. they try to oversimplify everything in this, but is there some break through in this point of republicans saying you know what, the debt isn't such a serious problem? >> there's no break through. i think it is a big deal that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is alway

the reality of a paul ryan budget which is nothing more than a rehash of the failed agenda that the american people have already rejected. the republican budget continues to push harsh and unnecessary budget cuts that eliminate the safety net for millions of middle class americans. the american people don't want a budget that break ours promises to seniors by turning medicare into a voucher program or cuts investments that support job creation just for the sake of more budget busting tax cuts for the wealthiest taxpayers and corporations. yet my friends on the other side my friends continue pushing this approach in the name of deficit reduction, but their own leadership admitted we don't have a debt crisis in the country. the architect, congressman paul ryan, said we don't have a debt crisis. speaker boehner said it's not an immediate problem. why should we enact this budget while democrats have a balanced approach to protect the middle class. why should we pass a budget that gets 66% of its cuts from programs for people of low or moderate income. why should we pass a budget that cuts pell g
